Surprised by the Elven Sentinels – September edition

Hello and welcome!

This happened to me yesterday… read on!

There is music being played in the halls of my apartment building? That is a first, and oh what beautiful music. It is like nothing I have ever heard. As the doors of the elevator leading to my apartment open I hear the cadence of the song change as the instrumental is joined by the most beautiful voices. I have a hard time believing this sound comes from a human throat. I exit the elevator and look down the hall to where I live, I am right. There are 3 Elven men standing before my doorway. All 3 had light blonde hair, were lithe, but powerfully built, and the distinctive silver-blue eyes of the Eagle Claw family. I wonder who they were related to that I already new, because I don’t remember meeting these three men in the past.

As I approach them, the first of the trio steps forward and bows. When he stood once more, he presented me with two-dozen perfectly formed white roses,

These are from one whose love is true. I am Goldier.

As Goldier stepped back a second Elf takes his place, bows and presents me with two dozen red roses, as he speaks,

These are from one whose passion is only exceeded by his devotion. My name is Falcon.

Falcon takes the keys to my apartment out of my hand as he steps back and opens the door. The third Elf is the one who was playing a harp that provided the background music. Without stopping his performance, he stated,

The music I play was created to wrap the love a Life Mate felt for his love. Yours sends the melody to you. I have been asked to play it for you from yours.

I walk through the doorway and into my apartment and find it filled with starflowers. Three Elven maidens are busily setting a meal on a shiny mahogany table, there are many covered plates. There are two chairs set behind it, side-by-side. The three girls smile, then break into giggles as one steps forward to speak.

I am Jenna, these other two are Julia, and Alissa. We have brought you fruits of our labors.

Julia and Alissa present me with desserts made with Mutzu apples. My fave, I have not seen these often since leaving my homeland decades ago. On the table there is a bowl filled with them to be enjoyed at my leisure. I pick one up and smell it, its fragrance makes my mouth water. Then Jenna continued,

We grew them for you in our orchard, and your Lord asked us to bring them to you.

I look around at how my apartment has been transformed. The air is heavily fragranced with the scents of the flowers that I hold and those that surround us. And I am sure about what is yet to come. First, however, I must thank these Elves for serving as messengers.

I can’t believe you came all this way to do this for me. I presume you are the ones who were in the orchard in ‘Air Bonded’.

Julia answered,

We were, but that part of our lives is done. However, when we returned home to find Lord Athïan looking so glum, we thought we would give him a bit of help to reach out to the one he is missing so much.

Jenna explained further,

We thought it was only fair, as we are together with our Life Mates.

Goldier smiled as he added,

We will serve you and your Lord as you share a meal. As the evening progresses, we will leave the two of you some privacy. In the meantime, enjoy the music, and the company of the one you love.

A golden light glows as Athïan walked into the room through a doorway that is wreathed in hundreds of starflowers. He holds his arms out to me, and I drop the roses as I run to embrace him.

Athïan!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ll leave the rest to your imagination 😉 Hope you enjoyed the part I revealed though.

They hails from book 3 of the Elven Sentinel Series by M. A. Abraham.

Jenna, Julia, and Alissa are three orphans who were taken in by an elderly couple. The land they live on has been theirs for centuries, it is where they have stood guard over one of the last few portals in existence. They can see the nimbus that marks its location from their farmhouse, and like the others of their calling, they refuse to leave it untended.

Riehl, Goldier, and Falcon know what and who they are looking for. Disguised as apple pickers, the Elven males arrive to find their Life Mates being held at gunpoint. The weapons the enemy is using is beyond their experience and they will have to handle the situation with great care and without exposing their Life Mates to even more danger.

My review: 5 stars

A great addition to the series. As it usually happens when I enter any Ms. Abraham’s worlds, especially the Elven world, I got lost in this story and was not able to put it down. The evil is not fully defeated, but suffers a major loss and the story ended on a happy note with the Life Mates claiming each other. 3 more happy couples added to the Elven Empire 😀
I am looking forward to the next instalment when the Elves finally (hopefully?) end the evil taking root in the human world for good.

CONGRATS to M. A. Abraham!
